Special Two Hour Television Event Airs Live from Portland on February 22 at 8PM ET/PT

The Mother Lode - the origin of something valuable or in great abundance - has evaded the GOLD RUSH gold miners for three seasons. Todd Hoffman, Jack Hoffman, Dave Turin, Parker Schnabel, Fred Hurt and Jim Thurber are among the miners who have battled against equipment breakdowns, infighting and Mother Nature's wicked ways at every turn in the pursuit of a golden pay day that had become an improbable dream. Until now. One GOLD RUSH crew finally strikes it rich as Discovery's current #1 series ends its third season with its first-ever live event, GOLD RUSH LIVE on Friday, Feb. 22 at 8PM ET/PT.

After three years of digging the glory hole, Dakota Fred continued his hunt for an ancient waterfall and started to see the best gold yet just as winter set in. Were his hopes of walking away a millionaire this season dashed by his crew's inability to keep their equipment up and running? Parker Schnabel brought in a brand new crew and rebuilt his wash plant, but was family mine simply out of gold rush ground? And in this Do or Die season, Todd Hoffman set an ambitious 1,000 ounce goal. To get a million dollar pay day, he doubled down, securing two claims and twice the men and machines. Was Todd able to right the wrongs of his past and finally hit if big? Hosted by Christo Doyle, Executive Producer of GOLD RUSH and host of THE DIRT, GOLD RUSH LIVE will be jammed packed with surprises and announcements and will reveal the miners shocking mining plans for Season Four.

And most importantly, the moment everyone has been waiting for. Each mining crew will finally reveal their total take in gold for the season during GOLD RUSH LIVE. Who will hit the mother lode, and who will fall short? These crews do not get along and for the first time ever in GOLD RUSH history we will bring all of the miners together to lay everything on the line...live. There is no way to know what will unfold in GOLD RUSH LIVE.

GOLD RUSH viewers will have the opportunity to attend GOLD RUSH LIVE by entering the "Gold Rush See It Live Sweepstakes" which gives two viewers the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to attend the event. On the Feb. 8 episode of GOLD RUSH at 9PM ET/PT, a code will be given out and viewers can enter the code at www.goldrushgiveaway.com. The winners will be announced during the Feb. 15 episode.

Last week's episode of GOLD RUSH earned a 3.07 HH/2.55 P25-54/2.02 P18-49 and delivered 4.7 million total viewers P2+ making it the #1 ad-supported cable program among HH, P2+, P18+, P/M/W25-54, P/M/W18-49 and P/M18-34 delivery, no exclusions, on Feb. 1. It was also the #1 program in all of television, including broadcast and cable networks, in numerous key demos on Friday night that included M/25-54 and M/18-49. After 13 weeks straight as the #1 program in all of television for men, GOLD RUSH ranks as the second highest-rated Discovery Channel series of all-time behind only DEADLIEST CATCH.

For Peacock Productions Colleen Halpin serves as Executive Producer along with Al Berman. For Discovery Channel, Christo Doyle is executive producer and Meagan Davis is coordinating producer.
